    Default Stopping by woods on a Snowy Evening

    I need to analyse the poem Stopping by woods on a snowy evening, by Robert Frost.
    I understand what it talks about but I don't know what it means.
    Spacially when he says:

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep
    But I have promises to keep
    and miles to go before I sleep
    and Miles to go before I sleep

    Spacially when he says:

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep [and I'd love to explore them]
    But I have promises to keep [I have things that I must do]
    and miles to go before I sleep [This may refer to actual distances to be covered/walked or it could be figurative meaning lots to do]
    and Miles to go before I sleep
    I've never actually read it myself, so these are just guesses from the available context.
